USEFUL LINKS TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL BEING

 

BELOW IS INFORMATION FROM KENT COMMUNITY HEALTH NHS

From time to time we all struggle with our emotional health and wellbeing.  For some children and young people it can be difficult to manage and understand their feelings.  Young people might experience a wide variety of difficulties including low mood, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating or might be avoiding school.

Call the Single Point of Access number on 0800 0113 474 between 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday – Choose option one, followed by option two for a consultation and we will listen and talk through the support available to you and your child.  This will help you decide if a referral into the service is required.

If a child or young person needs urgent help please call 0800 0113 474 or text the word KENT to 85258.

The school health team may support you and your child directly or refer you to another provider if appropriate. Our team works closely with the Kent children and young people’s mental health service.

We also offer the following services:

Chat Health

 

Chat Health is a text service for 11-19 years. Young people can text with a member of our team about any physical or emotional health concerns they have. This service is available Monday to Friday, 9am on 07520 618850.

This service is confidential and anonymous.
